Barricades and rubbish containers were set on fire as police and demonstrators clashed for the third straight day in Barcelona on Wednesday, as the Spanish Supreme Court sentenced Catalan independence leaders to 13 years in prison.
Footage shows protesters pushing barricades protecting the Ministry of Home Affairs of Catalonia, as police officers arrive trying to disperse the protesters. Firefighters and local residents trying to extinguish the fires set by protesters can also be seen.
Spain's Supreme Court convicted twelve independence leaders, including former Catalan Vice President Oriol Junqueras, for their role in the autonomous region's attempt to secession and holding an illegal independence referendum. Nine of the pro-independence convicted were given jail sentences ranging from nine to 12 years.
